i agree with smgarcia -- post break she seemed to have gained a role -- like they realized she was there for the first time and told her what to do.....

"oh you're the girl who came out at the end of all those playin in the bands.... why don't you try this...."

i think in 76/77 she had a great rapport with jerry on stage and added nice backup vox on the some ballads like FOTD and Candyman -- she was usually a very welcome addition to the sing-along on He's Gone and i believe some of their vocal workouts on the Dancin' outro were downright righteous.
